Liberty Watch Section
I put a motion into the civil forfeiture case over a year ago, but I was never served with the order that the court issued. The other day I opened a Pacer account and was looking for what the court ordered in the “warrant” case (which I’ve been reporting here,) and I found the order of the court in the “forfeiture” case.
I found that the judge basically denied my motion for the same reason he denied my motion for an order to show cause because he thinks it is frivolous that I am requesting a hearing in the matter. These denials tell me that they do not wish to hear anything that I have to say or give me any remedy through the federal courts.
I said I would let everyone know about the progress of my little escapade regarding the “Liberty Dollar” in the federal court of North Carolina. I asked the Federal Court to reconsider my motion to quash and the Magistrate came back with “it is well settled law….” Continue reading →
As mentioned in the previous Liberty Dollar Update, the U.S Attorney alleged that I did not have “standing” to challenge the Seizure of the property. In the Order denying my motion, the Magistrate pointed out that I did claim an interest in the property, however he noticed that I did not say that I expected a privacy right at the location where the Warrants were served. I still haven’t figured out why he would interject a “privacy right” where no right was needed or available. He denied the motion with prejudice, which means no trying again on that, and he commented that he didn’t like my use of such “harsh words” when I gave my “opinion” of the officers investigation.
Although it appears that I have been precluded from proceeding in this particular matter and the Magistrate advises me to pay close attention to the Forfeiture and Criminal cases, I still have a few options that I believe may give a remedy. I’ll be working on this for the next couple weeks and will keep everyone posted with the results. It not over yet!
Back in November of 2007 the F.B.I. raided four locations belonging to the Liberty Dollar around the country and seized thousands of pounds of copper, thousands of ounces of silver, and many ounces of gold, plus a quarter million dollars in cash. The ‘feds’ then began a civil forfeiture action in 2008 and a criminal action in 2009. They proceeded to ‘bury’ the criminal defendants with 1.5 million documents to force the defense to waive the speedy trial rule and take many months to sift through the paperwork in order to create a defense.
On April 15, 2010 I sent into the federal court in North Carolina a motion to quash the four warrants that were issued against the Liberty Dollar back in November of 2007. The court unsealed the case and gave the United States ten (10) days to respond to my motion. Last Monday the attorney for the U.S. sent over his response requesting the court deny my motion. Thursday morning (4-28-10) the Court received my reply to the U.S.’s response and we are now waiting for the ruling. As soon as I hear, I will let everyone know.
I know most people know this to be true, I just have to remind everyone that not only is it true, it is a *very dangerous* fact. It is dangerous because many who want to learn to defend their rights, will inevitably go to an attorney for advice. The attorney will **lie** about any issue of law.
The day before court, my friend Shawn (not her real name) got a hold of her public defender on the phone. She was asking the attorney what he was going to do for her and when he kept telling her she didn’t have a chance to win, she asked if he was going to quit. He said no….
It’s a few days after returning from the Campaign for Liberty in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and I’m still very excited and charged up. A few people said they got to watch the convention on C-SPAN, which covered the whole evening except the last singer, Sarah Evens.
The first morning we were there, we went to the bookstore, in a mall, where Ron Paul was signing his book The Revolution: A Manifesto. There was over a thousand people all supporting Ron Paul and the Campaign for Liberty. It was extremely exciting and we met lots of people from all over that were just as excited as we were.
I’m here in Minneapolis and we just got back from The Nation Celebration, a concert that Ron Paul came to at at the end of at about 10:00 p.m., and got everyone fired up. He wants the Campaign to continue for the next few months at full throttle because he said we don’t have much time, he believes the Neocons are planning to go to war.
This morning we went to the book signing where we lined up at Borders Bookstore in a mall that was filled 90% with Ron Paulers.
He sat for 2 hours signing books and shaking hands. Wow, it was really exciting! Lots of people from all over the States. They drove, walked, and flew in, and are still continuing to do so. Even our hotel, which is 30 miles North of Minneapolis, still has Ron Pauler’s rolling in.
It’s difficult to figure if we can live stream in the convention center, However, I’ll do my best to keep everyone informed of our progress.
Here is what is happening today:

Ron Paul and the Campaign for Liberty are making a significant investment in ensuring your three day stay in Minneapolis is the best ever. None of this is possible without the very generous donors who can afford to fuel this growing movement. If you are willing to make a major contribution to Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty we ask you to please click on the donate button or contact us at email@example.com or call 703.347.6886.
We have a handful of special events lined-up for donors who can make a very large financial investment in the Campaign for Liberty. Please contact us to see how you can become a VIP.
And a note from Dr. Paul:
If they expected us to retire quietly from the scene, the political elite are in for a surprise.
Today I am making some very big announcements.
First, from August 31 to September 2 in Minneapolis, we will host a handful of events that will shake the political establishment. Everything will culminate on Tuesday with the official launch of the [Campaign for Liberty](http://www.campaignforliberty.com/) at the **Rally for the Republic.**
The Campaign for Liberty will be the largest organization for peace, freedom, the Constitution, and sound money in American history. It will launch in grand fashion with lots of special guests and – if the early television and print inquiries we’ve received are any indication – plenty of media attention.
I would like to personally invite you and your family to join me and thousands of others in Minneapolis for these events and send a message to the Republican Party.
**Tickets will go on sale for the [Rally for the Republic](http://www.rallyfortherepublic.com/) this Friday, July 25 @ 10AM CST.** We want this to be an unforgettable day, so we are holding a **ticket bomb** all day Friday in the tradition of our famous money bombs. How many seats can we sell on the first day?
In patriotic fashion all tickets will cost $17.76, so you can afford to bring the whole family.
This leads me to the second big announcement. After measuring the excitement and enthusiasm, we decided that the Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota was just too small to hold you. Therefore, we are making a significant upgrade. The Rally for the Republic will now take place at the **[Target Center](http://www.targetcenter.com/default.asp?targetcenter=88&urlkeyword=Arena_Info)**, the largest arena in Minneapolis!
This promises to be the most spirited and provocative political event of the year! We held some very large rallies during the presidential campaign, but I have never attempted anything of this scale before. **Its success rests entirely in your hands.**
Later this week I will announce two internationally renowned musicians as headliners for the Rally for the Republic. We’ll also be joined by rock star Aimee Allen, NBC’s Tucker Carlson, Barry Goldwater Jr., Gov. Gary Johnson, conservative stalwart Grover Norquist, former Reagan deputy Attorney General Bruce Fein, presidential historian Doug Wead, MTV’s Adam Curry, musician Mark Scibilia, and Frank Sinatra impersonator Rick Ellis. Other special guests will be announced soon.
My staff has been working overtime to provide you with three full days of entertainment. Please visit the schedule page of the website and read all about upcoming events. We also have a lodging page to help you find accommodations in Minneapolis.
Together we are taking back our government and restoring the republic. Please join me in Minneapolis to kickoff the Campaign for Liberty and support our Revolution. **Can I count on you to be there?**
P.S. I know that you have done so much already, but with both major party nominees threatening to lead us into bankruptcy at home and more wars abroad, the success of the Rally for the Republic and the launch of the Campaign for Liberty is crucial. Please do what you can to be in Minneapolis August 31 – September 2 and send a loud and clear message of freedom, peace, and prosperity.
